    My son just ran across this incredible story from a link at slashdot.com: Obama’s “Regulatory Czar”, Cass Sunstein, proposed in 2008 that “conspiracy-theory groups” be “cognitively infiltrated” by government operatives, and the groups in question “undermined”. His paper advocating this was supposedly published in the Journal of Political Philosophy in 2008.

    The original story was broke by Raw Story dot com. I’m unfamiliar with this site, or how reliable they are. But here’s the story:

    And a scintillating-little “fair use” quote from the article:

    “Estrin notes that Sunstein advocates in his article for the infiltration of “extremist” groups so that it undermines the groups’ confidence to the extent that “new recruits will be suspect and participants in the group’s virtual networks will doubt each other’s bona fides.””
